In Windows 95, Microsoft extended the allowable length of filenames beyond the former 8.3 convention. But filenames longer than 255 characters (or 260 characters in Vista) are still a problem; typically, such files cannot be opened or run, and often they cannot be renamed or deleted using Windows Explorer. File/Folder Clean-Up Tool (Long Path) purports to solve this problem by providing an Explorer-like interface with which to find and delete files and directories with long or corrupt names. Unfortunately, the trial version of the tool disables the actual delete function. With a price tag of $19, this application makes the prospect of learning a few DOS commands look almost appealing.
Part of what will gall you about spending the money is the bare-bones interface. Granted, the application was built to perform a single task, so a Help file may have been overkill, but still: a few words of guidance would have been nice. On the plus side, with only one function to fulfill, the application simply runs without installing a file.
If your machine is overrun with files with long or corrupt names and you have $19 burning a hole in your pocket, this application may be worth a try. Otherwise, we recommend you check out other utilities that are free or offer more trial features.
